Art and DT
Art and design are highly valued and exciting components of the TPS curriculum.
Lessons aim to stimulate the pupils’ creativity and imagination and enable them to communicate what they see, think and feel by using colour, form, pattern and a wide variety of materials and processes.
Our well-resourced art and design facilities are housed in our newly rennovated building, The Hub located at 51, High St, Hampton. The new art and design room has a spacious teaching area with specialist equipment used weekly by the pupils from Year 3 upwards.
Pre-Prep pupils are taught art and design in their classrooms, through a topic-based approach. They are inspired by their learning and enjoy using a variety of different art materials to explore both the work of other artists and their own ideas.
Pupils further explore ideas and techniques by investigating the work of artists and designers as well as visiting art galleries and attending workshops.
The art department offers a variety of extra-curricular clubs and also has links with local designers and artists.
Pupils also enjoy displaying and exhibiting their work around the school and in the magazine and develop a great sense of pride in being part of enriching the school’s vibrant environment.
They always remember that everyone is a special kind of artist.
DT prepares our pupils to take part in the development of tomorrow’s rapidly changing world and helps all pupils become discerning and informed consumers as well as potential innovators.
Pupils are taught to develop their skills using a wide range of tools and materials and are encouraged to think creatively and become autonomous problem solvers.
Projects aim to enable them to identify their ideas and their ability and make products that have a purpose.
